We ventured up here as part of a big group on the Deerstalker weekend in March. Arrived for our check in time and only 1 of the 6 rooms were ready meaning we had to sit around for 45 minutes leaving us little time to prep for the race. Arrived back late and we were informed we could only buy...

This hotel is an ideal base for a relaxing getaway in a picturesque location. There are nice walks close by and the hotel offers decent swimming/spa facilities. Our room, an executive double with golf course views, was very comfortable although could do with a slight update in terms of carpet and furniture which has seen better days, but overall very...

We visited last week and had a reasonably okay experience. I'm giving 4 stars as the staff were really lovely and we did have a great time. They need more staff. Need to be more organised at breakfast. Need to not over cook steak (supplement not paid as goodwill). They need to have a bigger swimming pool area. I know...

Booked on 5pm and we weren't disappointed. Upgraded to the exec suite for an extra tenner and had full use of the facilities. 1 night stay - 3 course dinner & brekky . We hit the driving range for 30 minutes which was really fun. Wished we had stayed an extra night but work calls. Service was strong. Management lady...

Booked in for a two night business stay & arrived at around 9pm, to be fair they held a table for me in the restaurant even though it closed at 9. I got to my room and jumped in the shower in a hurry to get to the restaurant. Unfortunately the waste bin in the bathroom contained the remnants of...

Recently organised a society golfing weekend at Cardrona and cannot recommend the venue highly enough. Firstly the break was very good value for money. The hotel facilities were very good, the food was particularly good, the golf course was not at its best due to recent bad weather but was very acceptable and the staff were excellent and particularly worthy...

Hotel and food lovely but standard of service let it down. Lift not working properly - temperamental for 4th floor, wine list not available at dinner as they only had 6 and they were already of diners' tables, long delay between starter and main, bottled water served was "luke warm", red wine was freezing cold. We were offered coffee and...

The hotel itself is well located close to Glentress Forrest which is fantastic for mountain biking which was the reason we chose this hotel. We have stayed at Macdonald hotels before and we had high hopes for a lovely couple of nights away with the family, and although the suit we had was very nice, the customer service experience at...

The hotel itself is set in a lovely location, the countryside around it is beautiful and the views from the rooms are lovely. The food is really good, we had lunch in the bar, dinner on the evening and breakfast in the restaurant all of which were of a high standard. The spa area is lovely although there is a...
